  1. Django's rating of the film Mr. Holmes

    This movie is first and foremost a character study of diminishment and accepting one's mortality. On that score, Ian McKellan knocks one out of the park turning in a performance that's at once broad and expansive and nuanced and delicate. The plot within which this outstanding performance takes place is less interesting and the pacing feels a bit draggy at times.

  2. Chihao Tsang's rating of the film Mr. Holmes

    Bit too slow throughout, McKellen gives a good performance

  3. Sarah J.B.'s rating of the film Mr. Holmes

    A few degrees out-of-character compared to more nuanced portrayals of "the machine with a heart" (canon and Jeremy Brett come to mind first) to an extent that slightly bothered me, though the relevance of such a comparison is easily argued against, and I wouldn't necessarily disagree. Pretty, pretty, pretty mise-en-scène, Sir Ian, and a script that does its best to hold back being silly do the legacy enough justice.

  4. jajabornixa's rating of the film Mr. Holmes

    What could have been brilliant was marred by a lack of depth- a lean on towards sentimentality rather than emotional resonance. However there are certain interesting moments.

  5. Xose Manoel Ramos's rating of the film Mr. Holmes

    Atureina enteira, así que leva 2 estrelas

  6. Stephane Tanaka's rating of the film Mr. Holmes

    3.5. Very touching in the second half

  7. Joao Francisco Pinho's rating of the film Mr. Holmes

    A demonstração da fraqueza e de uma qualidade humana num ser humano que era caracterizado como o humano menos humano de todos os humanos.

  8. Star Lord's rating of the film Mr. Holmes

    Ian McKellen fa una gran parte ma il film è troppo lento e quasi malinconico.

  9. cinegeek.de's rating of the film Mr. Holmes

    Die Figur des Sherlock Holmes wurde in den vergangenen Jahren gleich mehrfach neu erfunden. Diesmal erleben wir ihn als alten Mann auf dem Land. Der ehemlas berühmte Detektiv aus der Baker Street, Sherlock Holmes (Ian McKellen), ist 93 Jahre alt... mehr auf cinegeek.de

  10. Aaken's rating of the film Mr. Holmes

    Worth watching perhaps for Ian McKellen who can bring life and depth to even the most mediocre film. Story is totally unsurprising. Cinematography is exactly what one would expect from a British period film: as refined as it is academic. But if one feels undemanding on a Sunday rainy afternoon, then it is pretty decent.

  11. jooley's rating of the film Mr. Holmes

    Not so much a Sherlock movie, but a quiet little film about tying up loose ends and trading wits for wisdom in the twilight years. So without a lot of bang for your buck, this is a very heartfelt sendoff, and most of all, a great excuse to spend 100 minutes with Sir Ian Mckellen.

  12. Marisa Loureiro's rating of the film Mr. Holmes

  13. Esra Yılmaz's rating of the film Mr. Holmes

    I love that finally most iconographic and beloved detective finds himself in real human situations,getting haunt by past,getting old,feeling lonely,his intelligence is fading that mother and son were good choice to feed the story ian mckellen was just ... I don't know what to say

  14. Justwibi's rating of the film Mr. Holmes

    far from my expectation but this movie success made me more in love with SHerlock Holmes!

  15. MIRZBOW's rating of the film Mr. Holmes

    i've read the book version and the movie isn't that bad. but still... it's boring.

  16. Denis Zordan's rating of the film Mr. Holmes

  17. Huey McEvoy's rating of the film Mr. Holmes

    Interesting high concept - an elderly genius tries to solve the mystery of his own retirement, obfuscated by dementia and guilt - but the writing isn't interesting or tricksy enough, and certainly not worthy of the great Conan Doyle stories. The performances hold it together, and the photography of the Sussex coast is stunning.

  18. tjim's rating of the film Mr. Holmes

    Acting is good, it's visually quite beautiful and the music is fine, but none of the three stories is interesting.

  19. filmcapsule's rating of the film Mr. Holmes

    Mediocre as both character study and golden years drama, significantly less effective as mystery. It never seemed clear what tone or story interested the film the most, but it's not without its modest pleasures. To the extent that this film is successful it's because of McKellen. He's simply so facile, a brilliant technical actor who gives the film some much needed grounding.

  20. Henrique Amud's rating of the film Mr. Holmes

    Far from perfect, but also very far from the dull experience some people seem to be complaining about. Mr. Holmes does not deliver any thrills whatsoever, only a heartfelt story about memory, fiction and regretfulness. It does look like a made for tv movie, but a good one, with an amazing McKellen and an understated Linney. Just don't expect a Conan Doyle story.

  21. Cinema Omnivore's rating of the film Mr. Holmes

    7/10, my review: http://wp.me/p1eXom-23R

  22. Daniel Iván's rating of the film Mr. Holmes

    Acting here is the center of the formula. The whole cast. Amazing.

  23. Adam Cross's rating of the film Mr. Holmes

    Probably one of the most dull displays from Ian I've ever seen. I know this is barely a step above a TV movie, but come on.
